David Tacey is one of my favourtite Australian authors. I was first introduced to him about 15 years ago. The book I was given was one of the text books for Bendigo outdoor eduction students at LaTrobe. I can remember vivid scenes of the diversity of Australian landscapes and Spirituality.
I think he has real insight into Australian Sprituality.
I noticed that he spoke at the Progressive Christian Network in Melbourne and spoke of 'Beyond literal thinking'
You can see the PDF of what he spoke on here. I found it interesting that his Spiritual progression was similar to mine... (I actually think it is a common experience!)
